More Trouble for Avangard
Wednesday December 03rd 2008, 12:06 pm

According to Russian site Sports Planet, former NHL goaltender John Grahame may soon be asked to leave KHL team Avangard Omsk.

Yesterday near the club “Atlantid” Grahame was noticed in an intoxicated state, after which a police squad arrived and took him to a detoxification center.  Club president Konstantin Potapov and Avangard general manger Anatoli Bardin came shortly after to collect him from there.  Later from a source in the club came information that the management of the Hawks is going to terminate the contract with the hockey player.  Another option that is not ruled out is the possibility of trading the player.  The press service of the club has not yet officially commented on the situation.

Like the rest of his team, Grahame has struggled in recent weeks.  His record has dropped to 9-10-2 and he currently has a 2.86 GAA and .896 save percentage.  Avangard has lost 7 of their last 8 games, their only win in that span a 3-2 shootout victory on Nov. 23.  Grahame was not in goal for the win.
